We have interesting and challenging news to share with you.

YSK President Mike Pickard, in addition to guiding our company, has recently been selected by our industry leaders to serve as the President of the Machine Knife Association. This group that is one of the oldest trade associations in the country has a primary mission of sharing machine knife technical and industry developments with its members.

Mike has taken on the mission of continuing the growth of the organization by bringing in new members , both manufacturers and suppliers to the industry in order to  share the ever-growing challenges of technical changes in both materials and processes. He recently stated, ” our Association recognizes the need to address the globalization that has occurred and to strengthen our members ability to meet the needs that have resulted.”
